“BLAZBLUE: Continuum Shift” Announced! (Scans) *UPDATE


Artist homepage: Aslan no Tamashii

Below are scans from the October 2009 issue of Famitsu magazine. This BlazBlue follow-up, entitled 「BlazBlue: Continuum Shift」, will feature new characters, moves, stages, and other related content. It will be released soon for the arcade; and eventually for the Xbox360 and Playstation 3 consoles.

*New features known (*as of now):

  • Character Tsubaki Yaoi now playable; (this should come as no surprise for those who finished Story Mode in the console version — she’s under direct orders to assassinate Jin and Noel.). She is a multi-hit character, making her user-friendly. Her drive is called “Install” and it powers up her existing special moves.
  • At least one more new character confirmed.
  • System changes; how it’s being balanced is not specified.
  • New HUD.
  • New stages; old stages redone.
  • Arcade version will receive a Beginner Mode for easier input of combos/moves, etc.
  • All existing characters will receive new moves; Rachel (new Distortion Drive), Carl (new projectile with Nirvana), Arakune (new curse attack), Ragna (new dive attack), etc.
  • There will be a Loke Test this weekend at “Game Center Hey” in Akihabara.
  • *UPDATE #1: Nu is now known as “Λ-11 (Lambda)” and has been nerfed to hell. An image of her new identity can be seen below.
  • All character changes found here.
  • New character portraits added below.
  • *UPDATE #2: Tsubaki vs. Bang cam footage available below.
  • *UPDATE #3: Hazama confirmed as second playable character. Scans available below.

In my opinion, Tsubaki’s outfit suits her just fine. No complaints there. Out of all the known features announced so far, I think seeing Rachel have a new Distortion Drive has me the most excited. Not all too thrilled about the new HUD, so it will take some getting use to. Also, I don’t think I’ve ever did this on the blog, but for those of you who have the PS3 version of the game and want to play a few rounds, feel free to add me: pkjd818. Always looking out for new BB players to add.

  1. Carl with a projectile? The horror.

    New drive for Ragna? Wonder how they will change him then.

    As for Tsubaki, I just hope she doesn´t turn the balance of in the game.

    Now all we need is some gameplay.

  2. looking pretty good. I hope this becomes dlc but I know in my heart that this will probably be considered a new game and will have to buy it again when it gets ported eventually.

    Tsubaki's design is pretty interesting, so looking forward to seeing some video of her in action.

  3. Sweet Hazama is a character now. Thank god they nerfed Nu and why the hell did they change all the characters, it seems like they nerfed all of them.

  4. So I guess the new Carl is going to be very, very different. He's not as reliant on his infinite, he has a projectile (it sounds like a good one), etc. I think they are making him more like a regular character with all the buffs and nerfs to what made him unique.

  5. Hey, haven't been here in a while :P Btw, if anyone plays BB on the Ps3, add “glencocoe” – I play Nu & Litchi. Feel free to send me a message and fight w/me and my friends! And btw! I'm making A BIIIGGGGGG POST about BB soon

  6. The first one was heavenly great for xbox 360. I hope it come out to console very soon and thank fully A NO.11 is stil Nu.

  7. alrighty…anyone wanna play(on 360 thank you) someone trying to master Tao(i kinda suck at this game) and Nu(maybe noel sometimes)
    add: TiM3L3sS dARk
    have fun beatin my @$$

  8. i play Arakune & Taokaka, and i like to fight you.
    Teir List: this is what i heard

    Top Teir:3.Haku-Men,2.Litchi,1.Bang
    High Teir:3.Hazama,2.Arakune,1.Lamda-11
    Mid Teir:4.Taokaka,3.Jin,2.Carl,1.Ragna
    Low Teir:4.Rachel,3.Noel,2.Tsubaki,1.Tager

    I might be wrong about Mid and low teir but i am absolutely sure about high and top teir. They say that Bang and Litchi are god teir,and i hate bang and litchi. I'm a little steamed that they made arakune a bit weak but I can still manage with him and tao.
    My 1st Best is Arakune
    My 2nd Best is Taokaka
    My 3rd Best is Nu(now Lamda)
    My 4th Best is Noel Vermillion
    My 5th Best is Rachel Alucard
